The newest patch for Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide adds new hardcore achievements, a hidden trial, and more.
If you've been looking for a reason to return to Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, it's here: there's a new patch that adds all sorts of things to find. Titled "Arrogance Lost," Update 1.9 adds new achievements to the game that developer Fatshark calls "super-hard."
The new update also includes updates to weaponry and traits, including a rebalancing and a second tier of traits on all red weapons. There are also new hero skins being offered for sale at $2 each. You can see them in the video below.
Finally, there is also a new, hidden area named "Trial of the Foolhardy." To access it, you have to complete the Wizard's Tower level on Hard difficulty or higher, and then follow the steps that are laid out in this community post. Once you've found it, you have to complete it successfully for your game to remember that you found it. Alternatively, you can have a friend with the area unlocked invite you in.
